Reason for Fulham vs Aston Villa Predictions
The hosts suffered a 3-0 home defeat by Arsenal at the start, while in the latest round, they lost to Leeds United in a 4-3 thriller. The losses left the Cottagers in 18th place, and the team needs urgent improvement. Last season’s top scorer, Aleksandar Mitrovic, passionately added his two goals on Elland Road, while he will take over the Villa’s defense on Monday. Mitrovic must be the starter, as he is the best player on the team. Tom Cairney is a guy who makes a lot of trouble for the opponent on the left flank. He has speed, a tremendous one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Neeskens Kebano enjoys the pitch, when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems, he is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy. Scott Parker is looking for responsibility in every game, he has a quality playing staff, and with the new reinforcements that have arrived, the goal is to survive in the Premier League. There are no injured players, and all players are in the protocol for this match.
Aston Villa started the season late because the initially scheduled opening had to be postponed in order for opponents to have a more extended break. The delay paid off for the fans as Villa had the winning start, beating Sheffield United 1-0 at Villa Park. The visitors have failed to score in four of their last six away games against Fulham. Dean Smith largely depends on the creativity of Jack Grealish in the offensive line of the team. Grealish is the best player in Villa, and many clubs want this guy. Getting a loan from Bertrand Traore could ease the creative burden for Grealish thanks to scoring goals from Burkina Faso during his debut in the League Cup in the middle of the week. Anwar El-Ghazi is a great player, he has good dribbles, and his greatest virtue is speed. Meanwhile, Aston Villa has a few injury worries. Belgian center-back Bjorn Engels, striker Wesley, and goalkeeper Tom Heaton are all out due to injuries. There remain doubts over the availability of right-back Ahmed Elmohamady.
A strong home record against Aston Villa suggests that Fulham may pick up their first points of the season on Monday. A close victory of the hosts is expected.
Not many goals are expected in this match due to the form of both teams. The realistic prediction is under 2.5 goals.
